Hello Fellow Wedding Planners!
I am a newly wed as of June 21, 2014 and wanted to share my experience with Olde Tymes Restaurant of Norwich, CT. Let me start by saying, we got married at Rocky Neck State Park in Niantic CT. If you are not familiar with the pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park, I suggest you google image it, because the venue is perfect for a wedding. My husband and I knew if we could make it work financially, this would be our spot. Rocky Neck has a small list of approved vendors, and were we lucky to find Olde Tymes Restaurant and their catering coordinator Debbie White on the list. Olde Tymes ended up being the most affordable with the most options for food and bar. They were up front and honest with prices, breaking it down option by option. We didn't know when we signed our contract, just how helpful Debbie would end up being. She has many connections and has worked with with many other awesome vendors, so she was able to provide us with reviews and suggestions. Having worked with Rocky Neck before, Debbie knows how important the rules are to follow and how to set the place up in record timing. Her staff was amazing too! SO friendly and willing to go above and beyond to help. You can trust your day will go smoothly with Debbie. She is very good under pressure and just the problem solver you need if anything should go astray. I should mention that our guests LOVED the food too! I feel forever grateful for Debbie and Olde Tymes for not only there great service but for all there support as well. Being a bride on budget, I was SO happy we were able to get married at beautiful venue on the beach. If it wasn't for Olde Tymes I know this wouldn't have been the case. I can't stress enough, how lucky we feel that we ended up with not only choosing the caterer that had more to offer with a lower price tag, but how much more than a catering vender Debbie and her crew are. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend their food, their service, and their business!

Katrina gave us the opportunity to work with another vendor who they had chosen to do a pig roast for them. It's always great fun to work with a theme! Thanks for choosing Olde Tymes Catering for your wedding day! Best Wishes from Debbie and the entire staff.

Debbie was amazing and a great comfort to me during the stressful rush of the wedding. The staff who attended the wedding were excellent. They were polite, were smiling every time I saw them and were truly efficient in all they did. The wedding was great and the food was delicious. My only problem was when it came to Rodney and his rude and cocky attitude. He was the only reason I wouldn't have went with old tymes as a vendor whether he was the one who agreed to the reasonable prices or not. The way he talked to me actually made me cry. He never aplogized or anything. I actually never saw him again before the wedding. If it were not for Debbie I would have never went through with giving them my business since the owner- Rodney- doesn't know how to speak to the customers who are the ones responsible for making his business as successful as it is. But thank you Debbie and thanks to the staff and chef who actually care about the customer and who were the ones who made the experience one to recommend. So if you don't have to deal with Rodney the way I did you'll love it straight through.

I cannot say enough good things about Debbie and her staff. Phone calls were returned in a timely manner and all my questions were always answered. Debbie even helped and made suggestions on things that I had no clue about. She was great! The waitstaff that night was awesome, and our guests loved the bartenders!! Food was outstanding!! That was the best beef brisket we have ever had. I had so many compliments about how great the food was!! It was great!! We got married at Rocky Neck, which is a difficult spot with all it's rules and they came in did they're thing and it was spot on!! I would recommend them to anyone!!!! Great value for your money, and you won't break the bank!!!!

We want to thank Jessica for her review. She mentioned two things we are extremely proud of: 1 our beef brisket and 2 our reputation at the Rocky Neck pavilion. Olde Tymes Catering is chosen more often than any other caterer so if you are considering this "challenging" location we can help you with the beach wedding of your dreams all while complying fully with the the State park rules.

My husband and I got married at Rocky Neck State park. We had to go with Olde Tymes since they were the only caterer that services the park that we could afford. BUT, knowing what I know now, I would have contracted them even if I had the money to go elsewhere! Debbie was wonderful, she was practically an event coordinator. She made sure everything that was supposed to happen did, and on time, and she rescued us from a couple of disasters that I didn't even know about until I got back from my honeymoon. We changed the menu about 3-4 times before the wedding and it was never a problem. We worked out a menu that we absolutely loved within our budget and everyone raved about the food which was delicious and hot! It was a wonderful day and night and we are so grateful to Debbie at Olde Tymes. I would reccomend them for any event catering especially weddings! We used Olde Tymes to cater brunch the next day also and again, it was perfect!

My husband and I had a Steampunk wedding on a riverboat that had limited resources for food preparation. Old Tymes catering worked with me through the entire process to make sure that everything I was looking for was met while fitting into a rather tight budget. They went out of their way to make substitutions to ensure that my husband and I could eat everything provided (between food allergies and religious observance that is easier said than done!). The food was delicious and plentiful and I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

We have to say that this was our first Steampunk wedding. We loved the Victorian influences and welcomed the opportunity to create a menu that not only fit the theme but also allowed the couple and their guests to enjoy every item offered. Getting married at the Valley Railroad location, taking a steam train and boarding a riverboat all added to the ambiance, you felt you had stepped back in time!

Debbie- the event coordinator at Olde Tymes- is simply the best. Both Debbie and Rodney were great in working with us to design a menu that was perfect for us and fit our budget. Debbie was helpful and responsive throughout the process and even helped us come up with ideas for decorating the location. She was a life-savor the weekend of the wedding, and handled everything without us having to get involved with any of the details- we were much calmer knowing that she was taking care of everything. We couldn't be happier about how everything went. Everything was perfect, and the night went seamlessly.

I am so happy that we decided to use Olde Tymes as our wedding caterer. Once I saw that they were approved and recommended by Rocky Neck State Park, it was an easy choice, considering that I have been going to the Olde Tymes restaurant my whole life, and have always had delicious food and amazing service!! I have nothing negative to say. Debbie was a dream to work with as a coordinator, and she made everything so easy and stress free for us. I couldn't of imagined that the big day would go as smoothly as it did. They were on the ball from the first time that we met, until the event was over with. Honestly, to this day, my guests always bring up the excellent food and service. I highly recommend using Olde Tymes for your wedding or any large catering event!
